Cassie is still devastated by her famous mountain-climbing husband’s death three years ago, but sexy bad-boy actor Robbin relentlessly campaigns to make her his next sexual conquest, especially after she stretches the truth to obtain a job as his father’s cook on their dude ranch. In her eagerness to make herself helpful around the ranch, Cassie impulsively starts several conservation projects that are not well received by the traditionally minded cattle ranchers, while Robbin struggles to regain his focus and write a screenplay after falling afoul of the darker side of fame: alcoholism, drugs, and mental instability. Welling’s heartwarming exploration of the clash between nature and civilization, cowboys and conservationists, is set among the majestic Wyoming Grand Tetons around Jackson Hole and draws deeply on the past to enlighten present difficulties and choices. --Lynne Welch
